SDcard mounting issues on the MSI and AA1-10 netbooks

Hi All,

  So I was having issues with SDcards mounting on the MSI and AA1-10, so I opened a bug on it.

 Guoqing Zhu from the Beijing development group was just logged into the MSI system upstairs, he found the problem.

  I had formatted the sdcards on Windows XP Home.

  Once I used his suggested mkfs command :

  mkfs -F pcfs -o fat=32,spc=64 /dev/rdsk/c4t0d0p0:1

  spc=64 being the correct parameter, all my sdcards started mounting and unmounting correctly.

OpenSolaris SDCard driver for Acer Aspire One - here

Hi All,

Here is the Alpha Release tar file for the SDCard driver for OS .

tar xvf SUNWsdcard.tar

pkgadd -d .

init 6

Now you should be able to insert sdcards in either slot.

Have fun

OpenSolaris B105, Acer One, SDcard slots working

Hi All,

 Still in Florida on vacation, I have my spare Acer One with me, Garrett D'Amore and Vincent Wang worked out the issues with the sdcard controllers.

I have a gnome desktop with two sdcards showing up a 16Gb and 4Gb.

I just did an Evolution backup to the 16Gb sdcard, it looks good.

I cannot get to my FTP server from here but I will post the package on January 5th when I get home.

Everything is now working on the Acer Aspire One.

Next, just got my hands on a Elonex WebBook, it has the VIA 1.6Ghz processor.

Happy New Year

Dave
